Why Attend?

The fact is that protecting intellectual property is extremely important to most businesses. In fact, this growth in intellectual property related legal work has been so profound that courts are often at a loss as to how to deal with many of the issues. It is more imperative more than ever, to seek a career change in IP. Engineers, lawyers, scientists, researchers and artists are all in need of understanding and benefiting from this practice. In fact, one can scarcely pick up a newspaper these days without reading an article about intellectual property disputes. IP law is involved in every major decision in the world. Today, it is fundamental to the success of our economy.
